Every two years the anticipated Research Association Effectiveness Awards (RAEAWARDS) recognise the contribution those undertaking research, evaluation, data analysis and insights generation make to New Zealand business success.
The RAEAWARDS are always a highlight on the New Zealand industry calendar, and in 2021 we will be celebrating 21 years of recognising outstanding research through the awards. To celebrate this milestone, we’ve added a few new features to the awards. These will acknowledge the changing nature of the industry, along with highlighting the impact of excellent insights management. We are looking forward to celebrating the most successful client projects, giving them the recognition and exposure they deserve. You can be a part of that success!
